Gary McBride was born Feb. 21, 1942, in Burlington, IA.
Gary worked many years for the Burlington Community School District and then moved to Colorado where he became maintenance director for the Summit County School District. He then moved to Denver where he retired as maintenance director for Eaton Terrace, an assisted living facility where he was much loved by the residents and faculty he served.
He enjoyed working on and driving late model race cars in his younger days, racing many years at 34 Raceway Park and other dirt tracks in Southeast Iowa.
Gary loved spending time in the mountains both summer and winter, he was an avid cross country and downhill skier, often leaving his sons "in the dust" as he would say when racing down the mountain. He competed at a very high level in many marathons and triathlons across the country, often times placing first, including competing in the Boston Marathon.
Gary spent the last five years of his life in Lopburi, a small village in Thailand where he enjoyed the open air markets, fresh fruit and the culture of the area with his wife Vichuda. If you had the opportunity to spend any time at all with Gary, there was no doubt what he enjoyed the most, what he was most proud of in his fascinating life; it indeed was his family. Gary was preceded in death by his parents, Margaret and George McBride.
He is survived by his wife, Vichuda of Lopburi, two sons, Mark (and Laura) McBride of Wever, IA and Sean McBride of Seattle, one grandson, Zachary McBride of Des Moines, one brother, Bob McBride of Burlington, and one sister, Carol (and Bill) Stanton of Olathe, KS.
Funeral service and cremation will be in Thailand.
